"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

If I prefer to learn one pronunciation system( British, American), can I understand someone who speaks the other one ?

    I'm a British English native speaker @Mehrdad and understand American English fairly well (though mainly through watching American movies). Americans sometimes find British English a little different but usually we can understand eachother reasonably well.

    Thank you for answering.
    I'm not a native speaker. Is it the same for me too? Is there any nonnative advanced speaker here to Share his/her experience?

    I think it really depends on what accent you are used to. I find many students prefer American English because of all the American movies they watch or because they had a teacher with an American accent @Mehrdad.
